Tata Motors is a Geneva Motor Show regular but this time the Indian auto maker has got nothing new to show.

Last year, the company came up with the interesting Nano Megapixel concept which previewed the Europe spec Nano. While we expected an all new concept at the show floor, we were greeted with two familiar models – the Tata Aria and Tata Safari Storme Mountain Rescue.

The Tata Aria has been on sale in India for over a couple for years now. Its European debut comes late but eying on export markets is the only way for Tata Motors to derisk the Aria since the 7 seat MPV is struggling in the domestic market, in spite of being well engineered.

The car is powered by a 2.2 litre diesel engine which puts out 140 PS of power 320 Nm of torque. The ladder frame chassis is made using hydro-form technology which saves weight.

The European version gets new headlamps and tail lamps along with an automatic gearbox.

The Tata Safari Storme Mountain Rescue is an interesting concept which would be apt for the snow covered nations of Europe.

The SUV gets meaty off road tires covered by metal chains so that it can grip on showy surfaces.

    Now, apart from the smoked bezel headlamps and other cosmetic changes, the new Aria is supposed to have a power train that produces 155PS of power output with a colossal 400Nm of torque.

    I do feel that the Aria and Storme have definite European influences when it comes to their designs. I hear that the Aria is already sold in countries like Italy. It’s an open secret that Tata is seriously eyeing European markets for its new generation models. Bold move, but they’re pretty confident of the quality of the vehicles. The Storme story tells it all -no niggles and complaints. Just delighted users.
